over the years there have been various proposals to allow non-citizen members of san francisco to vote in city elections. in your opinion, which city elections, if any, should be open to participation by non-citizen residents and which non-citizen residents should be allowed to vote in those elections? >> the harsh reality is that so many non-citizens still have children in our public schools here in san francisco, throughout the state of california and throughout the united states. as all of you undoubtedly know. with that being said, it's vitally important that those parents still have a say in the education of their children. i would certainly support and promote voting by those parents in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement to people who have traditionally been put at the margins of our society. in those two elections, i think, are the most fundamental in the sense that they go to the root of advancement in this country and the obtaining of the american dream. so

the civic and private sectors to create a better san francisco. and with all of these technology companies that are moving into the city, we need to make sure that our work force is trained and ready to fill these positions. to do this we have launched tech sf with an $8 million dollar grant from the department of labor that will provided case, training and job placement assistance in the tech sector. whether it's for young people coming out of high school or college or people retooling in the middle of their careers or are returning our veterans who want a chance to work in our technology industry, we're working hard to ensure san francisco residents have the skills, the training and the opportunities to work in these jobs. this is a critical step to making sure that the recovery and the economic prosperity reaches every neighborhood in our city. technology is not only bringing jobs to san francisco, but it's bringing new solutions to our government. we're embracing the use of technology and to enhance our performance, to measure our performances, to increase transparency and communica
